In Jeannie, high school student Corey Anders discovers Jeannie’s bottle while surfing and draws the title character out of it. Corey becomes the master to Jeannie and her apprentice Babu. Portrayed as a 16-year-old, Jeannie is shown as training the “junior genie” Babu, who frequently causes trouble due to his inexperience with magic. Playing the role of the comic relief, Babu is characterized as having a habit of “popping in at the most inopportune times”. The pair become close “friends and protectors” to Corey, who is Jeannie’s love interest.
Episodes typically focus on Corey’s attempts to hide Jeannie and Babu’s true identities as he attends Center City High School and Jeannie’s difficulties with adjusting to life in 1970s California. Corey’s storylines also include his friend Henry Glopp; other than Corey, Henry is the only other person aware of Jeannie’s identity as a genie. Other supporting characters include Corey’s mom (Mrs. Anders), a friend and an antagonist (S. Melvin Farthinggale), the Master of all Genies (Great Hadji), and Debbie. S. Melvin is portrayed as a “snobbish snoop”, who frequently sneaks around the Anders’ home due to his suspicions about Jeannie and Babu.
Jeannie is an animated spin-off of the live-action television sitcom I Dream of Jeannie, although it has a substantially different plot than its parent show. In this version, Corey replaces astronaut Major Tony Nelson. While I Dream of Jeannie was a family show, it focused on ’60s-style relationships (especially in its first season), the NASA moon project and broad slapstick. The humor used for the animated Jeannie, more focused toward teenagers and children, is of the “Archie” comics nature, with themes of dating, school events and friendship. Like the original series, Jeannie is emotionally attached to her assumed boyfriend and becomes jealous in the face of competition, a staple of teen-age comics and sitcoms. Unlike the original series, Jeannie is depicted as younger and with red hair instead of blonde; she activates her magic by shaking her ponytail rather than blinking her eyes.
